A creamy broccoli cheddar soup that features pureed beans instead of heavy cream!
Ingredients
  • 2 (14 oz.) cans reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 lb broccoli crowns, trimmed and chopped (approximately 6 cups)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground white pepper (I used ⅛ tsp ground black pepper)
  • 1 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring broth to a boil. Add broccoli. Cover and cook until tender (approximately 8 minutes).
  2. Stir in beans, salt, and pepper. Cook until beans are heated through, about 1 minute.
  3. Transfer half of the mixture to a blender with half of the cheese and puree (or use an immersion blender and blend to desired texture). Serve warm.
